Listen to your body. The first time it speaks. While I did take a day off from school, I pretty much ignored what I thought were sniffles this week. Then, I realized with an air-plane trip looming, I ought to see if it is a sinus infection (not something to discover at 40,000 ft). I popped into see a doctor during lunch and found that I have the flu, and the sinus infection, AND pneumonia. She asked me what the hell I was doing at work today. Um, finishing trimester grades and report card comments and running graduation rehearsals?
Now I am home with two shots in me and vials and bitters and pills. And a blissfully free weekend for rest and respite.
